In this week’s edition of Behind The Readers’ Forum, The Blade welcomes letter writer Joseph Martelli to discuss his recent letter.
Here is the text of Mr. Martelli’s letter:
I was quite impressed to see such quick action taken as a result of the sale the two derelict properties located on Southwyck Boulevard last recently (Jan. 22, “Toledo firm buys 2 buildings near Southwyck mall site”). I saw landscapers busily trimming and removing the overgrowth of trees and shrubs as a result of years of neglect at the 5355 Southwyck property.
Let’s hope that this “forward progress” continues, not only on these two buildings, but that it also sends a strong message to the other dozen or so property owners — clean up your act (and property).
Each week The Blade’s editorial board will pick a “letter of the week,” and the writer will be asked to come to The Blade to be interviewed for our Behind the Readers’ Forum feature, which appears on toledoblade.com and Blade NewsSlide.
